Vietnamese peanut sauce is the perfect dipping sauce to go with fresh summer rolls. It also doubles as a sauce for noodles, satay, or even as a salad dressing.
Peanut sauce is, hands down, my favorite dipping sauce or sauce for noodles. I have a recipe for a Thai Peanut Sauce that contains coconut milk and simmers on the stove.
This Vietnamese Peanut Sauce, though, is easier than the Thai one. It requires only 6 common, easy-to-find ingredients that are simply stirred together. There is no cooking at all!
